In an exciting development for golf in this country, Golf Australia has teamed up with one of the flagship supporters of golf worldwide to present the Johnnie Walker 9 Hole Challenge, Australia s first truly National 9 Hole competition. Golf Australia is continually investing in the development of our game and attracting new people to the sport along with retaining current players. Johnnie Walker recognise that time demands on our contemporary lives have been a barrier in entry to the game, and are as passionate as we are about growing the sport world wide. The Johnnie Walker 9 Hole Challenge is open to all golf clubs across Australia that hold a liquor licence and all golfers over 18 years of age. Entrants play a 9 Hole competition round and submit a scorecard which contributes towards their handicap. It also provides the chance to win a trip to Perth to play in the Johnnie Walker 9 Hole Challenge National Final, and attend the Johnnie Walker Classic at the Vines Resort & Country Club. Equally, players who enter a 9 Hole social round will go into the draw to win one of five random prizes of a trip to the Johnnie Walker Classic. Players may enter either form of the event as often as they wish at a cost of just $3 (on top of any usual club competition or green fee). Entry entitles players to receive a Johnnie Walker signature drink at the Club bar plus the chance to win a trip to Perth, for the National final. Your Club can also benefit by signing up for the Johnnie Walker 9 Hole Challenge. The Club that registers the most rounds as a percentage of total Club members, over the Johnnie Walker 9 Hole Challenge period will win a VIP trip for two Club members to attend the Johnnie Walker Classic in Perth.
